I'm starting a new posting where whenever I watch a movie that I like a lot I put up my recommendation. Today's movie is STRAIGHT TIME from 1978. It's not the best movie in the world, but it's on a par with Marathon Man. Dustin Hoffman stars as an ex-con trying to make it in the outside world. It's a great cast, including Harry Dean Stanton, Gary Busey, M. Emmet Walsh, Theresa Russell and Kathy Bates.
